these questions, mr. president. >> brian: sooner or later he will, and you and john mccain will observe a -- deserve a lot of the credit for keeping this story live. thank you very much. it's a very difficult day. >> thank you inasmuch i hope you're right. i hope he ans the questions. >> brian: he has to. >> steve: you would think so, wouldn't you? >> brian: i would think so. >> gretchen: there will be hearing, but they're on november 15, after the election. coming up next, the group aarp angering a lot of seniors campaigning in favor of obamacare in the backlash so bad, it's attracting some celebrity attention. from chuck woolery, and he's with us next. good morning, chuck. >> steve: and if you thought riding the storm out in your house was bad, imagine riding it out on a cruise ship with 30, 40, 50-foot waves. that's right. some ships are still stuck miles offshore without a clear path home. we'll talk to one of the passengers in the middle of the atlantic ocean on this tuesday morning. >> gretchen: 44 minutes past the top of the hour. the biggest story, hurricane sandy triggering a m
: this is the 2008 presidential race. barack obama way ahead of john mccain. and it is my understanding that in the polls recently for this election that romney is inching closer to obama, is th correct? >> it is correct. it is in within the margin of error. >> what do you make of the surge? minnesota has been a blue state what do you make for romney? >> it is a conservative minnesota, gretchen. in 2010 minnesota won both studies of the legislatures, republicans did. we are seag a move to a conservative trend in minnesota. >> gretchen: the governor seat went to a democrat in a tight, tight election and senator al franken won with 312 vote,many of them disputed and michele bachmann is in a tight race or do it see it that way? >> i have known mitch mitch for 10 years and one of the most dedicate hard working conservatives we have in congress and i believe she will prevail in that race. >> gretchen: she's up against tom graves. we have mitchell bachmann, republican 51 percent . jim graves 45 percent. and so that's outside of the margin of error . they had a recent debate i believe. did the
was beating john mccain in early voting by 19 points. democrats are famous for their get out the vote effort that precedes election today, early voting tends to favor them. look how it did in 08 obama 19 at that time. fast ford today, governor romney is beating president obama by 7 points marking a 26-point slide for the commander-in-chief. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. is that correct, chris? the early voting tends to favor the democrats. it seems like republicans don't like early voting, they complain about it because it favors the other side but not so according to this poll in this election. >> that is exactly right, megyn. the truth is democrats have long pushed to extend voting as long as possible. no election day, they want election month. they want more times to get their voters to the polls. there are more democrats than republicans. republicans vote with higher intensity usually than democrats. when we see a pupl lik number like pew's that the republican candidate has gone ahead when you're talking about a challenger
% of the vote. and barack obama just carried ohio four years ago, but because john mccain had really done no outreach to the evangelicals and they were loaded up on our colleague mike huckabee, they stayed home. 300,000 evangelicals in ohio didn't vote in 2008. obama won by 260,000 votes. if they come out in large numbers more romney and ryan in ohio next tuesday, as they did for george bush in 2004 and 2000, i think that romney could take that state. stuart: now, are the evangelicals voting positively for mitt romney? because they like mitt romney? or are they voting negatively against president obama? because they don't like president obama? >> well, the good news for romney is that it's a combination of both. romney has done outreach to them. and richard land of the southern baptist convention has endorsed him. did that yesterday. he met with billy graham about three weeks ago, graham is publicly supporting him. and i'm told that his selection of paul ryan was a huge plus, because ryan is a practicing catholic, very religious, the evangelicals, like paul ryan. on the negative side, the
either for john mccain or barack obama in 2008. one entire side of the voting population in this upcoming election is the portion of our country that lives on the edge. as we continue to cope with and rescue people from and now recover bodies from, the impact of this one storm on the most populated part of america's coastline today, the governor of new york state has been again and again trying to draw people's attention to this not being just one event, but a challenge for the whole country that events like this might now be happening with increased frequency. not just in new york, but in all of these heavily populated places, that before now had a fairly predictable relationship with the body of water, with the ocean, that they abut. what is that predictability? that balanced and expectation, developed over the past couple of centuries, and these cities on the water is now over. mostly this gets talked about in terms of the people denying that climate change is a real thing, and big talk about whether we should try to stop climate change and global warming. but that may be getting resol
voting numbers that they say shows the matching or exceeding what john mccain, where he stood at this time four years ago. they point specifically to ohio, cuyahoga county, they say, coal country, an area traditionally democratic, that they say is not going to go in the president's column this time around. nonetheless, they recognize the significance of ohio right now. they will be back there again on friday. he's going to have governor romney with him. 100 surrogates including a lot of family members, some governors and senators as they try to do that as well. to put this into language of one of the romney top advisers the polls, peter, amount to noise at this point. they still feel as confident as ever that they are exactly where they need to be in these waning days. >> isn't this a time them should be in the northwest, essentially defending southern turf, is that a troublesome time? why shouldn't that be seen as a troublesome time? >> reporter: well, i think you're right. this is all about getting out the vote and they're going to be bouncing across the country. if you noti
encouraged here. four years ago president obama was beating john mccain 55-40 in this survey, and now romney is leading obama 52-45. andrea, how conclusive? what do you draw from this? >> this is a very big deal. for weeks, bill we've heard the media selling the storyline that supposedly obama is crushing romney in early voting and we see that that is just not true. it shows that he's up seven points. and by the way, bill, that is a 22 point collapse from where president obama was in 2008. bob mentioned the swing states, let's take a look at those. you see that romney is leading in early voting in florida, and in colorado, and leading with absentee ballots in florida and pennsylvania. i would point out with ohio, by the way the president is down 22 million votes and program l 220,220,000 votes. and romney is up 260. this is not good news for obama. >> let's put something in perspective. florida and colorado have already had republican edges in early voting number one. pennsylvania as well, i might point out because democrats vote more on election today. in ohio it's not even close, in terms
then candidate barack obama beat senator john mccain with 52% of the vote in virginia. president obama's win at that time was notable was virginia had backed republicans in every presidential election from dwight eisenhower in 1952 all the way through george w. bush in 2004 except for the lyndon johnson landslide that happened in 1964. that is your history lesson for virginia. bill: early voting is resuming in maryland, it was su suspended for two days. voters turning out in big numbers, many saying they did not want to wait until the last minute. >> it's convenient to get it done ahead of time. i can't speak for other people, but for me one less thing to do next tuesday. >> before the storm i would have said it was the storm. now i think people want to make sure they have an opportunity, you know, to get in and voice their opinion. bill: the early voting hours and days to vote extended in maryland so that may explain why we are seeing a lot of folks there voting early. martha: let's go back to a live look right now at the jersey shore. my goodness, that is the boardwalk in point pleasant wh
for 15 months. i think that's all pennsylvania is for the romney/ryan campaign. john mccain spent the last weekend in 2008 in pennsylvania in a desperate attempt to do this as well. >> the president he is making three stops in wisconsin, though. that is a state, however, that in maps that the president's campaign manager has shown us months ago was in the safe category for the president. why does the president need to spend so much time in wisconsin in these final days? >> what the president wants to do in these last stops, as you heard him on the video there, is present the case one last time in front of people in wisconsin. we want to show people we're moving this country forward and moving this economy forward. >> that's a safe state, why is the president spending his vital time there? >> we want to make sure we lock it in. and, again, we want to put the choice in front of the american people. mitt romney wants to take us back to an economic theory that got us into this mess with tax cuts for the rich that he hopes trickles down and somehow helps the middle class. that's not ch
months. i think that's all pennsylvania is for the romney/ryan campaign. john mccain spent the last weekend in 2008 in trying to do this. >> president obama in wisconsin, jim mussina has shown us was in the safe category for the president. why does the president need to spend so much time in wisconsin in the final days? >> i think what the president wants to do in the last stops, as you heard him on the video there, is present the case one last time in front of people of wisconsin. we want to show people we're moving this country forward, moving this economy forward -- >> why is the president spending his vital time there? >> we to want make sure we lock it in. we want to put the choice in front of the american people. mitt romney wants to take us back to an economy theory that got us into this mess, with tax cuts for the rich, that he hopes trickles down and helps the middle class. >> there's new information out this morning about the consulate attack in benghazi, about the cia's role, how long it took for them to respond. there seems to be this dribbling out of information from th
, and essentially, it trounced john mccain's network. we were talking about contacts, volunteers, get out the vote machine. now, you bring up this point, and i thought it was interesting. you say he didn't really need all of that because there was enough voter enthusiasm and bush fatigue to put him over the top anyway, but you make the point here that you say the ground game, a superior ground game from this president, is absolutely critical. why the difference this go-round? >> well, the political rule of thumb is that your ground game, your field organization, can get you probably about two points above what you're polling or above what you would otherwise get. this is going to be a very close election. a lot of polls are showing it tied nationally. down to the wire in a lot of battleground states. you need those two points. in 2008 when obama really blew out mccain in a lot of battleground states, it was really sort of icing on the cake to have this superior organization and there's even a political scientist who has done a study and found that obama would have won that election anyway even wit
defeat john mccain in 2008 in pennsylvania. jon: let me take you back into some of those fox news polls with some surprising numbers at least to me. one of them is the question, when asked, what best describes how the obama administration has handled radical muslim terrorists? 55% of americans say they think it was too soft. now this is a president who constantly talking about how, you know, under his administration we got usama bin laden. 55% say too soft on that. what do you think, bob? >> that is clearly the effect of the deadly attack in benghazi because foreign policy before that attack was a clear advantage for the president, but the controversy and contradictory statements coming from the administration has hurt president obama that poll reflects it. jon: there are questions too about how this president is handling the economy. right now only 45% say they approve. 52% disapprove. in october of 2010 i guess, the numbers were slightly lower for the president. i'm sorry, in terms of the disapproval number. 61%. so it is getting better, but still he is not looking too good when it co
